Sacred Harvest Festival

Bright Hawk will be at the Sacred Harvest Festival in Southern Minnesota.

Monday August 4th – Sunday August 10th

A Quote from the website

Join us in our seventeenth year for an intimate tribal experience. Each year between two and three hundred Pagans and nature worshipers and their children and elders come together for a week of joy, fellowship, and learning. Our theme, “Gratitude” reflects the realization that for a mid sized festival in southern Minnesota we have hosted an amazingly talented group of speakers, visionaries, and musicians over the years. Sacred Harvest Festival has welcomed well over a thousand unique individuals who have made our tribe flourish. In gratitude, and for the first time, we have decided to bring some of our favorite people back as guests.”

Arise Music Festival

Bright Hawk will be part of Arise Music Festival in Loveland, CO

A Quote from Arise Website:

“An independent, family-run, leave-no-trace event, the ARISE Festival takes place over three days at Sunrise Ranch, a 350-acre organic farm and retreat center, located in a stunning Colorado mountain valley just west of the town of Loveland. Recognized as more than a music festival, ARISE offers a range of activities such as workshops, enriching yoga classes, provocative documentary films and panel discussions, art installations, live painters and art gallery, performance artists and theme camps. ARISE also offers “interactive villages” including a Children’s Village, Food Truck Village, Vending Village, Healers Village, Hemp Village, Wisdom Village and a Solution’s Village, showcasing ecological and social justice solutions with practical on-site demonstrations designed to make our world a better place.

The consummate summer camping festival for conscientious music fans — ARISE is renowned for bold and progressive “global cooling” initiatives, such as a long-held commitment to planting one tree with every ticket sold, staging a pre-festival permaculture training, local sourcing, an organic farmer’s market in the campground, and a leave-no-trace ethos.”

Bright Hawk @ Cascadia Fire

We carry the torch of the Fire Circle home and draw from deep roots in Cascadia and various magickal traditions to gather with the explicit intent of co-creating and cultivating community and healthy culture that embody creativity and respectful relationships.”

10th Annual Forestdance – Costa Rica 2017

Bright Hawk is honored to be part of Forestdance – Costa Rica 2017

10th Annual Forestdance Costa Rica Healing and Expressive Art Ceremonial Fire Circle Gathering

March 1st-6th, 2017, at Verdenergia, Lanas de Puriscal, Costa Rica

Come join our family as we share in deep and profound celebration of our lives together on sacred land,
in the hills of Costa Rica where we are reminded of just how alive we can be together.

Our facilitators and teachers will help guide the all night fire circle on an always profound journey, clearing the way for us to access and reclaim our own core, our inspiration, and our connection to nature.

Forestdance is a ceremonial gathering, a rite of passage.

This gathering is so profound, so beautiful, that it has shaped a community. It has reignited passions for so many talented people, and has shown an alternative way to co-exist that many of us have stopped dreaming about long ago.

Due to the deep nature of this event, to cultivate a powerful space, we ask all attending to arrive on the 1st to prepare for the start of the ceremony on the 2nd. No one will be admitted after orientatation.

We are proud and grateful to celebrate our 29th Forestdance gathering, (our 10th in Costa Rica).

We highly suggest to our attendees to schedule in a day and night for integration on site on the 6th of March. We’ll be gathering and offering additional activities on the 6th and potentially on the 7th.

“…Between the Tribes’ harmonic music, the laughter of the children and dawn tea made from roots of earth and wood, I reconnect to my family, myself, my power, our power, and the song that life always wants to sing through me but I don’t always hear. At Forestdance, I can hear.” -Robin Sol

Due to the intimate nature of this experience we cap the gathering below 100 attendees.

—————————–
Background Information

Bana Kuma” refers to our ability to make thoughts manifest into reality, or to create – a gift we all possess as humans. You are a self sovereign beings born with the choice to choose your own path towards your highest self.

Give yourself the gift of living in your personal alignment. Feel what it feels like to be your greater self. Let the feeling of the ‘real’ you become a beacon in daily life. Life is short. Don’t waste time in the quagmire of mistakes and life sapping activity.

—————————–
Retreat Design

The wisdom of the Bana Kuma is based off of each persons’ freedom and free will. In honor of this self sovereignty, this Bana Kuma retreat will be formatted with a myriad of daily offerings that you choose for yourself (See the list below).
The idea is that you show up and then choose for yourself the activities, ceremonies or healing practices that you feel are most in alignment with your personal expansion.

There will be four elemental camps that provide a wide variety of daily offerings. Each day will be split further into four sessions giving you the opportunity to experience each elemental camp, if you so choose. All four camps will gather in evening for a council around the fire or in the “Kinika” or spirit house.

This event is directed by Chris Berry (chrisberrymusic.org). He will be joined by other facilitators this year. For up-to-date info, email Banafest@gmail.com

Here’s a peak into some of the life enhancing activities offered by each camp…

WATER CAMP:

New! Swim with Dolphins and Whales: Experience a unique opportunity to swim up close with our Cetation brothers and sisters. January is a unique time in which the Humpback Whales visit Hawaii’s waters to give birth and to nurture their newborns. It is also a time when the Dolphins welcome their big Brothers and sisters back and the two species are often found singing together during this time. The Whales and Dolphins hold a very deep significance in the mythology and the wisdom of the Bana Kuma. You will know why once you have been in the presence of these great and peaceful beings. (Discounted boat and guide fees may apply).

Shiniwa: A water ceremony in which the first half of the ceremony is spent cleansing oneself in waterfalls. The ceremony takes place at dawn and in the evening if needed. medicines, songs and prayers are used to empower the process and the waterfall. While the first half of the ceremony is to release and cleanse the second half is done in still or ocean water and is meant to consecrate. The second half of the ceremony literally seals in good intentions and prayers and is meant as an empowering and blessing. Sacred anointing oils are used in this second half. Various music and songs may accompany both parts of the ceremony.

Tira: refers to various sizes of smooth rounded sticks that are used in massage to clear energy meridians or rivers in the body. The technique has been compared with Lomi Lomi massage and is paired with an ancient elemental diagnostic technique that reads points under the collar bone. This technique is very powerful on its own and also when it is paired with the “quivering” and the tea ceremony. One is also taught the art of walking the ‘razors edge’ or not taking on the patients ills while strongly being able to understand and empathize with them.

Haula Frieme: Using water as a healer. Learn how to bless and change the molecular structure of water to heal almost any malady. The ancients used water as a medicine by learning how to imbue it with living intention.

Hana-Quiema: Carried out in waste high water, a whirlpool of current is created by a group of people who encircle the person receiving the healing. The ‘patient’ floats in the middle while the others sing ancient healing songs into the water as it gently spins the person in the middle. This is an ancient healing technique over 10,000 years old.

Dance: Like water receives energy from heat (fire) and reacts so to does the dancer receive energy from the fire of music and move accordingly. The Bana Kuma has a rich tradition of healing dances dedicated to each element.

FIRE CAMP:

Kasha: Clearing ceremony that is ruled by the drum and the element of fire. Intentional heat is created in the body through drum and dance that burns away ones blocks. Special rhythms and dances are used with intention and prayer to bring one more in line with their greater self. The obstacles that keep us from reaching our greatest potential are targeted and burnt away in this ceremony.

Ziassou: Or action from Greater self has been compared to Qi Gong and or Tai Chi. This technique includes the use of a staff called Ta that is ceremonially made by each person. The practitioner is taught how to let the bigger self move them or how to have involuntary action. It is action in which the Spark of life or spirit moves the body rather than the smaller you. This practice can prove to be very healing for muscle, bone and joints and has also been referred to as the martial art of Bana Kuma. It is also imperative for those leaning the art of mediumship.

Macheka: Learn an African version of Chinese accupuncture in which medicines and salves are applied to miniscule cuts made at various myridian points on the body.

Steam-vent Cleansing: Puna boasts a myriad of sites that feature natural steam vents in Lava caves or rooms. This is much like a Sauna or a sweat lodge but different in that the cleansing comes from Pele herself and is extremely healing and powerful.

Shiakwa Sah: The art of fierce love. Shiakwa sah is a technique that allows love to be expressed through fierceness without anger. Mostly used when ones self sovereignty is being jeoprodized this technique is very useful for non-violent demonstrators or in self defense. It also suggested for parents as a strong but gentle for of discipline

Drumming: The drum is the patron instrument of the fire element. There are 12 elemental rhythms of the Bana Kuma that will be drawn from in this class.

AIR CAMP:

Haum: Is an ancient form of meditation. it can but does not have to be accompanied with fasting and isolation for small to lengthy amounts of time. Haum may also be accompanied by music or done in silence.

Kinika: Is a “spirit house.” It is where the art of mediumship or listening to ones greater self is practiced. One of the many activities that happen in the Kinika is ‘Roundcil.’ The spirits that take part in these councils do not act as Gurus or masters but instead as wise elders with expansive perspectives. Kinika is a place for wisdom and clarity to be shared among humans or humans and those of the unseen. It is encouraged that every word that is spoken in the Kinika be loved by the speaker. It is a place for passionate discussion and a place where life changing decisions are made. From the perspective of Bana Kuma thought is the seed of all creation. In this way it is from the Kinika that much of the Bana Kuma’s ancient wisdom has been seeded. It is also a place of story telling, Alternative perspectives on history and healing. It is always a place of co-creation where the seen and unseen complete the circle of life together. Kinika Literally means house of self sovereignty as each individual (spirit or physical) is seen as a sovereign being worthy of great respect. There is a pole in the middle of the Kinika which symbolizes each persons authority self sovereignty.

Gah: Gah is an initiation into Actions that are harmonious with all that is. Gah itself is small “medicine pouch” that is worn around the neck and ceremonially made by the owner. While the creation and receiving of this pouch is unique to each individual, there are protocols which are intended to enhance ones personal creativity and power. Gah is also an object of which you own together with those in the unseen realm. When one wears their gah they are stating that they are living or about to do actions that the unseens are in alignment with. Once one receives Gah it is said that ones power to manifest is greatly enhanced. It is also said that actions born from the will of Gah have a distinct power to change the world no matter how big or small those actions are.

Gah-Ta: Or that which is born from Gah, is the process of creating those actions or Bana Kuma that are impeccable and in harmony with all that is. This is the closest thing that Bana Kuma has to teacher training and is unique to each individual. It may include learning how to conduct Bana Kuma ceremony or something entirely different as each person has a unique gift to bring to the world. Those wishing to undertake Gah and Gah-Ta will have a special orientation at the beginning of the gathering to to co-create their 12 day journey. The actions that one creates from Gah are aimed at being Impeccable. The definition of impeccable for Gah is something that is in harmony with ones greater self, The unseen world and all life on earth. Gah and Gah-Ta is suggested for those who want to guide their own retreats, ceremonies, healings practices, teachings, performances, take on leadership roles or anyone who wants to share their creations with the greater community.

Sah-kanama: Is ancestral or spiritual healing. It is said there are three main routes to Spiritual and Ancestral healing. One is that negative entities have ‘hijacked’ or attached themselves to a person without permission. This is often prevalent in Schytsofrenia, or those who have moods that they cannot control. Learn an extremely effective technique to release these entities from yourself or from others who may seek your assistance.

The second route is unresolved past lives. Past life stories that can still play out in our lives today. Learn how to resolve and to release their negative effects on your life and the lives of others.

The third route are those things passed down to us by our ancestors that reside in the memory of DNA. This too can be transmuted and healed.

Learn to diagnose which route the spiritual affliction comes from and how to effectively treat and heal it forever. It is said that ones entire lineage may be healed through this process.

Wind instruments and Song: Learn to play a pentatonic bone flute and also the sacred songs of the Bana Kuma.

EARTH CAMP:

herbal studies, medicine making: learn an ancient technique of herb gathering called “The Quivering” In which the plant world communicates directly with the person harvesting the herbs for the benefit of those who will be consuming the herbs or tea. Create Salves, tinctures and other healing remedies with the vast array of healing herbs on the island.

Tea making and ceremony: The tea ceremony that follows from the freshly harvested herbs is an ancient one in which all elements are honored as they combine to make the tea. Teas are made on an a sacred fire and the healing effects have been to many to mention here.

Gudoku-doku; Or tree medicine focuses on all of the healing properties of tree bark, roots and leaves (different from herbal or plant studies). Gudoku-doku actually refers to the club that is used to pound the bark and the roots while making them into medicine. The first song taught in this practice speaks of the club and the medicines power to kill or to heal. The song refers to the fact that we possess great power in the decisions we make. Apparently many things from trees can also be poisonous if not treated in the right way. This practice requires special attention and intention from the practitioner. The tree medicines can also be used in the Elemental tea ceremony.

Chimbo: Is the basic crafting or consecrating of objects, adornments or clothing. Chimbo are consecrated in ceremony to represent something that is shared between the spirit and physical realms. They are empowerment objects. Since these things are shared with the unseen realm, a process is undergone to be guided by ones spirits. A Chimbo consecrated and owned by both the individual and their spirits but is taken care of by the person who is alive. There is no limit as to what the object can or cannot be.

Bana Kuma music on Western instruments: Learn some or all of the 12 Bana Kuma archetypical music on any instrument other than the voice, drum or flute.

—————————–
*We are viewing Gah-Ta as our teachers training. You may choose to receive in depth training on any of the activities listed above or choose your own Gah-Ta and receive guidance from your spirits and the spirit of the Kinika. In this process it is important that you co-create with those of the unseen so that your Gah-ta will be in harmony with the unseen as well as everything else. There will be extra councils for people in this program as well as a graduating process with Haha. This program is reserved for those who have their gah or are going to be obtaining their gah during the upcoming expansion.

Note to the origin of the Bana Kuma ceremonies: Bana Kuma is based on a goal of a final world culture in which all peoples share their ‘medicine’ with each other. Those that have co-created and shared these ceremonies with us have requested that we do our best to keep them from being put into a cultural box. Where the ceremonies come from is not important to the creators of these ceremonies. Wheter or not they serve you or not is what is important. Bana Kuma is focus on creating unity instead of division and therefor is for and from earth people for all people. We are warned that the Bana Kuma is never to be delineated as certain peoples tradition. The ceremonies are born from ancient wisdom that is universal to all. They are not to be owned by any one culture or people but be freely offered to all humankind. It is said that if Bana Kuma is not as universal as a tear or a smile then it is not Bana Kuma.

Adventure Stories with the Handpan

 

By Hollis Taylor

If you know Bright Hawk either by the fire, in spiritual community, as a musician, or in a facility you know that she holds a special talent in bringing people together. Bright Hawk’s work with Let’s Dance has lead her to tremendous growth in a way that is beyond words and sentences on your screen. I find her tremendous talent as a storyteller best shown when she combines it with her delightful abilities with the handpan. Here is her most recent video including a performance with the “Women of the World” as well as pieces of her “Dancing Happy Hippo Storytime Adventure” that can help you understand this dynamic being of peace and light. Her delightful smile and amazing talent of the handpan combined with her shiny personality and inspirational messages take her to gatherings around the world. Festivals all over the world delight in Bright Hawk’s presence at their events as well as libraries, schools, and other family based events.

Bright Hawk also has been playing the African Drum, Djembe for over 20 years. Many would first notice her amazing abilities rhythmically and honor her for her profound experience with both beginners and professionals alike! Here she is featured with the group “Women of the World”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac5uh2jVAp0

Percussionist Concert?

Bright Hawk has over 20 years experience as a percussionist. Her background began with African rhythms on the Djembe, branched out into marimba, and now is combined on the hand pan, Hang PANAart. The Hang is a very special instrument and for sure deserves the attention it gets but also neglecting to bring Bright Hawk’s percussion talents to the stage would leave us all missing out.

Bright Hawk is best known for her work on the Djembe and most people in the drumming world know who she is and respect her talents. She drums along side may names and along with many well known bands, including String Cheese Incident. Her percussion abilities are rarely matched and she is unique among other female drummers. Bright Hawk has had a long time vision of playing with a DJ for parties, concerts, and shows.

Recently she joined forces with Izzy Ahee, a new DJ, creating the Crazy Monkeys. Simply a DJ who lays down some fun beats that fit the audience. Songs that inspire our hearts, bring life to your feet, and bring community together with music. Their debut show is at Cannon Mine Coffee in Lafeyette, CO on March 31st, 2016 at 7pm.

Taking Steps in Denver

By Hollis Taylor

Bright Hawk began seriously building herself as a musician in the last year.  Bright Hawk has been a musician her entire life and was raised with opportunities to explore her talents in the fine arts. As Bright Hawk began to build a presence in the last few months right here in Colorado we laid our eyes on Swallow Hill Music. This venue is a music school with a historic stage that has featured several well known musicians. In Denver, and the surrounding area, this venue hosts hundreds of up and coming artists and often boosts them into a career.

There are several approaches a musician could take to get noticed at this very important venue. Bright Hawk went to their open mic because I was very confident that they would see the same amazing percussionist I see! I was right! They invited her back after seeing her live at the open mic with just three songs on the Hang PANArt. I knew her unique style and instrument would get their attention.

I am writing this to announce a big MILESTONE for Bright Hawk. Not only is she booked with 5 shows/events in February, a festival in Costa Rica but she is being brought in front of a VIP at Swallow Hill Music. This is big news and I am confident they will be just as pleased with her 20 minute show. Its very possible this opportunity could lead Bright Hawk to having more shows at Swallow Hill Music, a big achievement in a musician’s life.

Her regular practicing and fresh compositions on the Hang PANArt are opening a world made of her dreams. This is an honor for her and a moment of celebration. Also, if you live in Colorado and are able to come out and support the show, this is the time. This is that one time that you could really help Bright Hawk’s career. So I ask that if your schedule and location allow, please do this one easy and fun thing to lift up your favorite musician! FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE FOR SWALLOW HILL
